This year promises to be full of opportunities and challenges for the waste management sector and for our part we are looking forward to maintaining our position as the ‘go to’ company for quality re-manufactured and used refuse vehicles. Our range of brand new vehicles will also be increasing and diversifying as the year progresses.
Spare Parts is an area that we have already expanded considerably and we now offer a huge range of both new
and quality used spare parts.

Quality Used Vehicles –
The Taxpayer’s Choice!
More and more local authorities are approaching us to provide replacement vehicles especially if they need to fill gaps when vehicles break down, need servicing or if they are introducing a new collection service.
Denbighshire County Council in Wales is currently rolling out a new green wheelie bin service and recently purchased a quality used truck from us - a Dennis Elite 2 with Terberg Tinium split bin lift - despite previously always buying new vehicles.
Chris Brown, Assistant Fleet Manager, Denbighshire County Council explains: “While we roll out the wheelie bins we want to take this opportunity to monitor the fleet we have to see if and what changes are necessary to best deliver our new service. RVS has an excellent reputation and when we visited their stand at RWM we could see first hand the quality of their work.”
“We decided to forego the cost and waiting time of purchasing a new vehicle and RVS delivered us an immaculate, fully MOT’d, serviced and
re-sprayed used truck in under 5 weeks. It’s difficult to tell the vehicle apart from a new truck, such is the quality of presentation.”
Over at Malvern Hills District Council Danny Healey, Transport & Logistics Manager, faced the dilemma of needing spare vehicles for cover but was unable to justify the expense of taxpayers’ money to buy or rent additional new vehicles.
Danny said: “I’d heard about RVS and got in touch with Spencer who had some second hand vehicles exactly like the ones we needed. They were only 5 years old and four weeks after we’d seen them, they were delivered to us.”
The vehicles, two 6x4 Mercedes Econic, Geesink 70/30 Split bodies with Terberg triple bin-lifts, were given a full service and MOT before being re-sprayed and delivered.
Danny continued: “I couldn’t believe they were the same vehicles. Put them side by side with our new vehicles and you can’t tell the difference.”
If you need a vehicle to cover any shortfall in capacity, purchasing a re-manufactured or quality used vehicle can be a much more cost efficient solution. Call us to find out if we have any suitable vehicles in stock.
